Richard Pearce

Site Skills Lead Instructor

I have been working with computers since way back in 1983. During these 30+ years, I have witnessed, and been part of, many exciting developments. By far the greatest opportunity has been the ability to teach to a global online audience.

* Web Developer since 1995

* Built over 100 websites for clients ranging from national organisations to small businesses

* Over 50,000 students have taken my courses

* YouTube: 3,000,000+ views & 18,000+ subscribers

You'll usually find me staring at some sort of screen, but when I escape, I'm either juggling four kids, or taking a hike through the beautiful bushland that surrounds my home town of Sydney, Australia.
